Posted in Chatfield Government



During a relatively brief Chatfield City Council meeting held January 26, Rocky Burnett was introduced and hired to fill the EMS Support Position vacated by Nancy Timm, the new deputy clerk.

Ambulance Director Sue Kester reported that there had been nine applicants for the position. Three very qualified people had been interviewed, having met the minimum requirements of at least two years of experience as an EMT and the availability to respond to emergency calls from 6 a.m. through 6 p.m. during each business day. Burnett has been an EMT on the crew since 2011. The recommendation to hire Burnett was approved unanimously.

Other business in brief

•Fillmore County first district commissioner candidate Mike Holzer introduced himself. He noted he was a candidate to fill the position vacated by now Sheriff Tom Kaase, along with this reporter, Karen Reisner, who is also a candidate.

Holzer said he taught school for 35 years and coached football for 29 years. He served on the Wykoff City Council for twelve years, eight as mayor.

This contest will be the only item on the ballot in the special election to be held on March 31.

•Approval was given for the use of city streets for a road race (5k/1mile run) at 9 a.m. on June 13. Chosen Valley Running for the Aging is an event hosted by the Chosen Valley Care Center, Inc. to raise money for the city’s senior living community. Goals for the event include increasing involvement with the community and promoting the importance of fitness.

•Mayor Russ Smith welcomed Nancy Timm to her first meeting as deputy clerk. He also noted that winter frost measurements had been down 42 inches, but have shrank recently to only 38 inches.

•City Clerk Joel Young reported that the Household Hazardous Waste Collection is scheduled for September 15.

•Councilor Ken Jacobson, reporting for the Park and Recreation Committee, said that there has been more discussion on swimming pool issues. A study of the swimming pool is in the process of being completed. Jacobson maintained that pools in the area are a central part of a community. Tony Lammers said it will be early summer before recommendations are made resulting from the study. This coming summer the pool will be run the same as in years past.
